NextETRUCK: the project
The project builds concepts tailored for regional medium freight haulage with at least a 10% increase in energy efficiency compared to existing highest-end benchmark electric vehicles. In addition, it prepares concept and infrastructure demonstrators for fast charging. Finally, NextETRUCK offers new business models to increase end-user acceptance and foster the market uptake of the project solutions.
NextETRUCK stands for efficient and affordable zero-emission logistics through Next-generation Electric TRUCKs. It is co-funded under the European Commission’s Horizon Europe research and innovation programme. The consortium currently represents 8 countries: The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Greece, Austria, Turkey, United Kingdom. The project coordinator is TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research).
The consortium includes vehicle manufacturers, such ad Ford, Irizar and Tevva; component manufacturers like AVL, Panion and Jema; ITS and connected IoT services; universities and research institutions; associations such as POLIS and ERTICO.
